Side Effects of Tanning Beds

Yes! There are two major side effects of tanning machines. They have been nicknamed by physicians "skin cancer machines" because they increase your risk of developing skin cancer 3-4 times over what you would normally expect. They also age the skin markedly more rapidly than normal. Think about it. We physicians have been preaching sun protection for ages, and the FDA has just changed the rules to require that all sunscreens block UVA, and these machines are pure UVA.
